Is Your Halloween Masking The Perfect Answer For You?

Halloween Party

If you are planning 2011’s Halloween costume, you might have spent some time to look in a costume dealer or try the choices online. Halloween costume masks play a part of the costume business and Halloween celebrations. But Halloween costume masks usually do not satisfy everyone’s needs. Let’s see both the good and bad of Halloween costume masks.

The good

Probably the greatest facets of Halloween costume masks are that they disguise who you’re quite completely. Whatever if you choose a mask that covers your whole face and head, or only just a part, the form of your face is changed. Wearing it you will be acknowledged much more difficultly than it could be with merely face paint.

Being very easy to use which is another merit of Halloween costume masks while for face paint, you need a lot of time, patience and even a few whizzes to get the effect you want. Slipping a mask on and you can go.

The bad Halloween costume masks might harm you if you do not were them properly. You must be careful enough to make sure that Halloween costume masks won’t block your breath. That is particular true with kids’ costumes as a not properly fitting Halloween costume mask triggers them to be hurt while trick or treating. You need to try the Halloween costume masks on to see if they suit well before the Halloween night. Don’t wear a Halloween costume mask while driving.

You’d better take down the mask if your Halloween night is spent in a hot environment as it is scorching. When you feel hot, whatever how is the temperature around you, you have to take down it too. For example, you drink a lot, you act a lot and etc.

Halloween costume masks with extra detailed can be quite pricey. If you are on a budget, you might have to give up the one you dream of.

Halloween costume masks are essential to Halloween costumes, although they can’t satisfy all the people’s needs. If the Halloween costume masks you will buy are not the answer for you, maybe you hang them up as a creepy way to decorate your room.

How to do Misa cosplay?

Misa cosplay

Misa cosplay (in Death Note) is a so wonderful cosplay that many cosplay fans like to do Misa cosplay, so many people cosplayed her on Halloween.

Misa cosplayMisa ( Amane Misa) was an up-and-coming model who had an immense crush on Light Yagami, which quickly became a major obsession, to the point where she would do anything for him regardless of what happens to herself in anime Death Note.

Today I would like to write a easy Misa cosplay tutorial here.

Misa cosplay Wig:
The wig is fairly simple, you just need a long blonde wig. You can make the small pigtails by taking some of the hair on each side and using small elastics to put it in place. Use a wig head to help you see if the pigtails are straight, or measure it while it is on your head!

Misa cosplay costume

Misa cosplay costume is a adorable one! To make one yourself you will need to create a neckband, you can do this with pleather to imitate ones sold in stores, or just some stiff black fabric if you like something softer or cheaper.

For thick leather, you can usually get away with leaving it one layer. Measure the circumference of your neck and add on a little bit for where the clasp will go. Cut to size.  Add on a clasp to the end (carried at craft or fabric stores) or veclro or another way of closing it, and test it on your neck. Finally, add studs.

For other fabrics you may want to cut two pieces and a piece of interfacing to make it stiffer. Sew along the top and side edges and flip inside out so the interfacing is on the inside. Trim the interfacing so it is a bit shorter than the edges of the fabric. Fold the rough edges into the tube and sew along the edge, this will close your necklace tube. Iron it flat. Now you can add a clasp to the ends and then add the studs.

Once again, this is something you can find at a thrift store to the local mall! I suggest a stretchy fabric shirt; if it has sleeves you can always take them off and hem the edges. Then you just need to sew on some zippers as-is, zippers are available at fabric and sewing stores.

If you would like to make it yourself then look for a similar sewing pattern, it is very simple so it should be a good project for someone new to cosplaying. M5977 is a good pattern if you not include the front ruffle. Once complete, you just need to sew on some zippers, which can be found at a fabric or sewing store.

For the smaller necklaces you could look at a craft store for charms and some necklace chains. Just add the charm to the chain and the smaller ones are complete. Or you can create your on charms with sculpt.

For the large necklace you can create the cross with paper clay, since it is easy to form things and is very lightweight. Another option is sculpt, however you will want to form it over a tinfoil base so that it doesn’t become too heavy. Other options include paper Mache over cardboard or foam.

Under her gadgets she has fingerless gloves, you can either buy some online, at Goth type stores, stores like clairs that carry gloves and accessories, or you can make your own. If you can’t find any gloves that are fingerless, you can always buy gloves with fingers and cut the ends off, just make sure to hem any fabric that may fray.

The base of her blades are leather straps, you can make your own by buying pleather and cutting to shape and then adding snaps. You can sew 2-3 layers of pleather on top of each other to give it thickness and strength just makes sure you sew the snaps to your bottom layer first. You can also buy straps at stores that sell accessories, punchy type clothing and accessory stores, and online.

Another thing you can most likely buy at Goth-y punk stores or at party and costume stores around Halloween. Though if you want it to be accurate, the best way is to make it yourself.

Now you just need to add the studs. For the regular studded belt you can pick up studs at a craft or sewing store, they may come in a kit that explains how to add them. For the rounded studs, you can look at the same stores and they may carry them, or you may have to order them online. If you can’t find any you could make some with craft foam, by cutting a circle and taking a snip down to the middle of the circle then gluing it back together so it is now a raised cone shape rather than a flat circle. Paint it nicely and then hot glue it to the belt.

Okay last, sharing a good Misa cosplay video with you!

Cosplay, you really understand it?

cosplay

Cosplay is based on the animation, game development from a dress action. The surface from the clothing, props, make-up up to imitate one of the characters, then gradually mature and refined, COS divides into ACG (Animation • Comics • Games) and the arts COS (COS film characters and stars) is also Some type COS.

ACG in Cos — control character animation or games to imitate the behavior.

Arts of Cos —- including film stars were available characters in the story, star, band and so on.

Cos —- one type, such as control of existing SD, model.

Thus, Cos, is the role play behavior already exist after this world works appeared.

The so-called original Cos, can only be a dress action, not cosplay. And not lolita, punk.

Lolita is an attitude towards life and ideals, not a simple dress. Of course, a strong wind of

Lolita Bjd doll belonging to the human form class Cos is still Cos. But that is because there is reference to the prototype, a prototype of imitation, Lolita with the prototype exactly is Lolita, not Cos. Punk too.

The visual system there is the so-called VR, a talk about the visual system, many people think of a very heavy makeup, and gorgeous clothes. That we are wrong, here that the visual system (VR) is not a series of Visual cosplay, but a real kind of music culture. Only appearance looks like, no music, then this soul is not possible to have original visual department.

Keep in mind: cosplay role is a work of love, a passionate love of way, not a tool for personal fame.

Talk about Costume designer

What is costume designer?

A costume designer is a person whose responsibility is to design costumes for a film, anime, manga, and comic or stage production. Costume designers will typically seek to enhance a character’s personality, and to create an evolving plot of color, changing social status or period through the visual design of garments and other means of dressing, distorting and enhancing the body – within the framework of the director’s vision. At the same time, the designer must ensure that the designs allow the actor to move in a manner consistent with the historical period and enables the actor to execute the director’s blocking of the production without damage to the garments. Additional considerations include the durability and washability of garments, particularly in extended runs. The designer must work in consultation with not only the director, but the set and lighting designers to ensure that the overall design of the production works together.

Costume designer types

Generally, there are three types costume designer: freelance, residential, and academic.

A freelance designer is hired for a specific production by a theatre, dance or opera company, and may or may not actually be local to the theatre that he or she is designing for. A freelancer is traditionally paid in three installments: Upon hire, on the delivery of final renderings, and opening night of the production. Freelancers are not obligated to any exclusivity in what projects they are working on, and may be designing for several theatres concurrently.

A residential designer is hired by a specific theatre, dance or opera company for an extended series of productions. This can be as short as a summer stock contract, or may be for many years. A residential designer’s contract may limit the amounts of freelance work they are allowed to accept. Unlike the freelancer, a residential designer is consistently “on location” at the theater, and is readily at hand to work with the costume studio and his or her other collaborators. Residential designers tend to be more established than strict freelancers, but this is not always the case.

An academic designer is one who holds professorship at a school. The designer is primarily an instructor, but may also act as a residential designer to varying degrees. They are often free to freelance, as their schedule allows. In the past, professors of costume design were mostly experienced professionals that may or may not have had formal post-graduate education, but it has now become increasingly common to require a professor to have at least a Master of Fine Arts in order to teach.

What should the costume designer do?

1. Read and analyze the script.

2. Work with other set designer, lighting designer, and make-up artist on the production team to develop design concepts.

3. Do research to flesh out design concepts.

4. Produce drawings and color renderings of costumes.

5. Meet with the wardrobe manager and head cutter to discuss each design.

6. Purchase fabrics, new or used clothing and accessories.

7. Develop and implement a budget for costume-related expenses.

8. Develop patterns for costumes if necessary.

9. Attend fittings and rehearsals. This is for theatre, dance or opera productions.

A good costume designer will design out a creative costume! Look these stylish costume! just professional costume designer  can design out satisfied costume? no, we everyone one can do it!
